The relatively stable and low prices, and thus profits, that result from our modern food systems are not reflective of the life-sustaining value of food. CF Industries Holdings, Inc. operates in a manner that is a net positive for humanity. This outcome is largely driven by Crop Production ($75.0 B) and Economic Value ($1.9 B). Positive value from Crop Production is linked to an estimate of 1,556,585.4 equivalent years of life not lost to death or reduction in quality of life. The company produces economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. However, there is room for improvement with respect to Calorie Conversion (-$3.5 B) and Air Pollution (-$3.1 B). Crop Production, Economic Value, Calorie Conversion, and Air Pollution are mostly or entirely a result of supply-chain relationships. For this company, analysis without consideration of supply chain partners would yield a negative Humankind Value.

How the Humankind Value Methodology Drives the Rankings

We take a quantitative, data-driven approach to estimating the economic impact that companies have on investors, customers, employees, and society at large, rolling social responsibility into a single dollar value that we use to represent what a company is contributing to humanity. As far as we can tell, we're the first ones doing it this way.
